Men Astutely Trained

A History of the Jesuits in the American Century

A perceptive & provocative analysis of the transformation that swept through American Catholicism in the decades leading up to Vatican II.

The Jesuits have been the carriers of a culture borne along by a fruitful & often frustrating tension between their dual commitment to ancient virtues & to the pursuit of the free play of ideas. This book explains developments among the Jesuits and sets them in the larger context of the sea-changes that shook the world and the Catholic Church in the world during the mid-20th century.
